"So Very Blessed" 12x12 LO!

Hey everyone! 

Today's post is a LO (layout) I made.....
of me:) Using beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts elements! I had this picture of me for a while and I liked it but I just hadn't come across a paper line that I could 
use....all I could see was my orange nails and 
the black shirt I had on!! LoL  

I have never really liked orange but would wear it on my nails but not so much in with the nails peeking through and no way to hide that, I waited.....

...until I saw Authentique's "Carefree" paper line! 
Look at this, you can see the patterns! 

To see the entire collection, head over to 
Authentique's page...

Authentique was so sweet to gift this collection to 
the Craft Warehouse Design Team when we met on our retreat in March! I loved the patterns.....I couldn't wait to make my LO with it! So here it is:) I hope you like it!
Thanks Authentique!!

This is the floral spray I made:
